The beautiful Maya East Coast -- now called the Mexican Caribbean -- has been for more than five centuries a doorway for distant cultures. Explorers from distant shores looked past the coral reefs, past the mangrove forests in search of the builders of these strange temples on the seashore.
Why hide a city?
1. Journey with us to an archaeological site not very frequented by tourists. We will take a short hike through the jungle where we’ll find the cave-cenote-pyramid relationship in one of the most special archaeological sites in the Mexican Caribbean.
2. Learn about the specific type of architecture of the Eastern Maya Coast and visit a unique ancient edifice where you will learn about and appreciate the Mayan architecture of Guatemala, right here in Mexico.
3. Visit the ecological reserves of Sian Ka’an, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you will have a rare eco-adventure in this pristine landscape.
4. Get to know the peninsular aquifer at its best, swim and cool off in acuatic channels built by the ancient Mayans to navigate the open sea.
5. Enjoy traditional food of the region prepared by contemporary Mayan people as we chat and share impressions of this wonderful journey through time.
